Additional Information

This one is what I believe to be a 1946 Treasurer.  It has a 10AK movement with a square date code.  The case is yellow gold plate and the dial is white/cream with the odd dot hour marker dial.  Came with a period stretch bracelet and after a cleaning and polishing is looking great.  Well I thought I had all of the 1946 Treasurer models then found this yellow gold model with the Odd Dot hour markers.  This makes 4 1946 variants.  Here is the whole family. I will have to take a picture with all 5 together. So it would seem that based on prior attributions the following variants for the 1946 Treasurer. 

Treasurer "A" Yellow Gold with White Stick Dial 

Treasurer "B" White Gold with Gray Stick Dial

Treasurer "C" Rose Gold with Copper Dot Dial

Treasurer "UNK1"  Yellow Gold with Brown Stick Dial 

Treasurer "UNK2"  Yellow Gold with White Dot Dial

I know why companies apply names to the designs, they are hoping one will become iconic and be the one that everybody knows. Longines had one called 'Flagship', which was intended to be the mainstay of the companies' various lines. 

Bulova seems to have been one of those companies with so many model names, they tend to get buried over the years, and transitions of near identical models into new names is confusing. A few have accidentally become iconic, but I'm sure no one at Bulova had any idea at the time they were produced.

I'm leaning towards 'His Excellency', but clearly this was smack- dab in the transition period.
